. bill: any chance republicans fold on raising tax rates? we will find out when we ask senator john f u.n. e, and conservatives say the fight is far from over. >> republicans have stood for one thing specifically, it's held them together, they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing obama wins and he wins big. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. i just finished a bowl of your new light chicken pot pie soup and it's so rich and creamy... is it really 100 calories? let me put you on webcan... ...lean roasted chicken... and a creamy broth mmm i can still see you. martha: unions are stopping work at another busy california port. this scene was last week when the workers picketed at the oakland port. now it is clerical workers at the port of los angeles and nearby long beach who are on strike as well. other unions, including the d
for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> reporter: rice requested to meet with her chief republican critics in order to explain why five days after the september benghazi attack that killed four americans she went on sunday talk shows suggesting it was sparked by a spontaneous protest. >> the information given to the american people was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. >> reporter: accompanied b
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th

preparing a u.n. resolution calling for a cease fire. probably our closest ally abroad in matters of war and peace is britain, and they are taking the same line as president obama, although they are being even more direct about it. the foreign secretary saying that hamas bares responsibility for what's going on, but he warns that "a ground invasion of gaza would lose israel a lot of the international support they have in this situation." a ground invasion is more difficult for the international community to sympathize with or support. so the world, at least the world of the united states and our allies is pretty much speaking with one voice here. israel, stop the ground work thing. that's the message from the president. that's the message from allies. that's the message from the international community. that's the message from the europeans. that's the message from the egyptians. and even though our own president is traveling abroad in asia, that's the word from the mouth of our own president. everybody agrees. except for one rogue state, i mean one red state. >> i think israel should do
wants upmake sure nobody is beating ?p on his u.n. ambassador? >> this is the problem. bain, we should probably go back to the dictionary. she's not a nominee. dictiona she's a nominee kind of in waiting. this is the problem the president can't defend her as a nominee for a job he hasn't hasn't nominated her for. this is kind of a loose shirttail out there. she's going around the hill, talking to senators. meetings aren't going well. in n part because senators, if nothing else, are reserving their leverage for if she actually does become the t onnee, they'll have a process, hearings. they don't want to prejudge that process. pr pro process hasn't begun. so the president has to say these limited things. when he says only a limited thing about her success at the u.n., he is not defending her on t theuestion that's before him. i the white house is in a tricky spot here. of course, then hanging overall of this is republicans anger hey are note still not getting the questions answered on enghazi and feel that the onesrs they're getting are as 's whatal as the original ones in the heard. you

that has nothing to do with health food. >> it's turning into a proxy war between senator john mccain and u.n. ambassador susan rice. top intelligence officials say they knew from the beginning that terrorism was involved in the attacks but kept rice's comments vague to avoid compromising future legal proceedings. they knew terrorism was involved but didn't know whether the attacks were planned in advance and they didn't have the suspect's identity. still, many house repub cans are saying he's unfit to succeed secretary clinton at the state department. >> i'm just curious. john heilman, first of all -- >> elizabeth warren. >> let's just say what happened, okay? the president's punch line was al qaeda is on the run, blah, blah, blah. they politicized intel. guess what, white houses do that. i'm not shocked, i'm not stunned. i wish they wouldn't have done it. but how do you protect americans in the future and what happened after the ambassador was already killed? but how long has susan rice been in public service, like since her 20s, right? >> a long time. >> so we actually have people on capit
? they include senator john kerry or u.n. ambassador susan rice. of course, senator john kerry recently spent a lot of time with president obama. he helped him on debate preparations. another person who has been very vocal about wanting to leave if the president has a second term. treasury secretary timothy geithner. he's been the president's right hand man when it comes to the economy. he helped bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. possible replacements for geithner include the current chief of staff jack lou, who is widely respected within this administration but also within washington, d.c. another person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland security secre
to war without a declaration by congress but accepting international authority from the u.n. or nato or even for preemptive wars, otherwise known as aggression. a financial political crisis as a -- number four, a financial political crisis as a consequence of excessive debt, unfunded liabilities, spending, bailouts and gross discrepancy in gross dispribution go from the mill class to the rich. the danger of central economic planning by the federal reserve must be understood. world government taking over local and u.s. sompt by getting involved in the -- sovereignty by getting involved in the issues of war, welfare, banking, taxes, property, ownership and private -- private ownership of guns must be addressed. happily, there's an answer for these very dangerous trends. what a wonderful world it would be if we accepted the moral premise of act of aggression. a suggestion is always too simplistic, utopian, dangerous and unrealistic to strive for such an ideal. the answer to that is after thousands of years, the acceptance of government force to rule over the people at the sacrifice of l
's link to the deep structure of the un years. the organ case has 47 pipes or the traditional motto, our tribute to christian civilization has 47 characters. did you know that at the time of pomona's first graduating class in 1984 there were 47 students enrolled and if you want to go deeper into the mystery, did you notice the last two digits equal 47 times 2? the article goes on like that for another 2,000 words. you know who else thought the number 47 kind of explained it all? >> 47% of the people who vote for the president obama no matter what. 47% who are with him who are satisfied with government and believe they are victims and government has the responsibility to care for them and believe that they're entitled to health care, food, housing, to you name it. these are people who pay no income tax, 47% of americans pay no income tax. so my job is not to worry about those people. >> mitt romney's famous comments on the 47% raise two questions. how can he say that? how can he say a single mom working two yobs and taking advantage of the child tax credit and a senior that worked all of
that u.n. ambassador susan rice used when she went on those five sunday talk shows, here's the picture, the famous picture of it. to talk about benghazi, but you say a few days before his office said they were responsible for editing the talking points, in a closed-door hearing the head of intelligence, james clapper, told you and other senators he didn't know who was responsible. question: two questions: where does the investigation stand? and how do you get to the bottom of it? >> well, it is like any other -- assuming the proportions of any other major scandal in this town, there are many layers to the onion and there are all kinds of questions raised, the most recent, the one you mentioned. i saw the director of national intelligence say he didn't know where the talking points were edited and now he's saying he did it. we'll be interested how that transpired. but, the biggest aspect of the whole thing is, it has to be really looked into. is why there was such a failure on the part of the administration in light of events, the two attacks on our embassy, assassination attempt on the

continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign by ahe grewing to go on the sunday shows to present the administration's position. jenna: senator collins is less outspoken than others is echoing the other republican senators who said they have concerns about the possible nomination of ambassador rice for secretary of state in the wake of some of her comments about what exactly prompted the terror attack on our consulate in the benghazi that led to the murders of four americans on 9/11. collins says she needs more information as you just heard before she will decide whether to support any nomination. of course as a hypothetical nomination. we don't even know if it is coming or not. ambassador rice is also scheduled to meet with republican senator bob corker of tennessee today. when we get his comments we'll bring those to you as well. jon: we will definitely stay on top of that story. a frightening development in the iran nuclear standoff. word that scien

? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
not support nomination for u.n. ambassador susan rice to be next secretary of state until questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya are resolved. rice met with the lee lawmakers over her initial comments about the attack which she said it stemmed from an anti-islamic video. >>> in the wake of jerry sandusky's child sex abuse trial said changes are needed they should handle how child abuse cases are handled and revamp how child abuse cases are investigated. that is the latest from fox news nit work. back to tracy and ashley. ashley: patti ann browne, thank you very much. we have another deal to announce to for greece's next debt payment. the euro touched on 1.30 earlier today. for more on all of this, i'm joined by marc chandler, global head of currency strategy at brown brothers harriman. mark, thank you for being here. we thought the euro may get a boost with the latest news that greece is getting next round of help assuming the parliaments in question agree but the only very briefly touched on the 1.30 and dropped back again. where do you see the euro going? >> ironic in
'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we are after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, and we've got a full blown investigation. and all the information will be be scorched to congress. i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you're four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't be any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she is an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person
. host: here is an interesting article. if all or on twitter says, what about the u.n. watchers that have been followed with threats of arrest? who are they and what are they here? -- why are they here? guest: they have come to elections in the last 20 years and moderate them. to be clear in terms of what they actually do the polls now, they are not trying to intervene in anything that is going on. they are observers. they are watching what is happening. they are taking notes. i actually got to see their observer form on saturday. at the end of the election, they come up with a report to talk about how the election went, how the system operated. it is something that happens all over the world. my view, it is really bad form for the attorney-general from texas, and also the secretary of state from iowa, who basically say we will arrest these observers as they come out and see our with elections. the truth of the matter is, we should be transparent about this process and willing to let people see how our elections run. host: from fox news, greta van susteren said, the election is none of th

ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. you say today our adversaries are breathing a sigh of relief, why? >> i think they have sized up president obama during his first term. they've seen he's a weak, inch attentive leader. they are not going to wait around for us to get our economic house in order. i think almost certainly during his second term that the pace and the scope of challenges that the united states will face will accelerate. jenna: why? >> you've named some of them. because they see a president who doesn't really concern himself with foreign affairs, who doesn't see, for example, iran's continuing progress toward nuclear weapons as the threat that it is. you have president putin who has already congratulated president obama on his re-election, undoubtedly thinking of the famous conversation with former president, russian president medevev about how flexible president obama will be after the re-election. now it's come to pass. why shouldn't they be happy. jenna: let's think about what you would say to the president -- you're laughing. you can't take him off the
. for instance, on the senate side where they wound up with a couple of these un-electable candidates. candidates who said a couple of stupid things and were not the most skilled candidates to begin with. they are looking at new ways to make sure they can get -- encourage more electable candidates through money, through events. the party bosses in washington, as they could be called back home. but they may look to outside groups to do that. party leaders recognize that they need to have a little more control over who their candidates are or they are going to keep losing these unlosable races. >> like in indiana, missouri. this time two years ago in maryland and colorado, in nevada, for example. they had a relatively easy win. but they, obviously, didn't materialize. hey, mike, thanks as usual for joining us. mike allen from politico. >> wolf, thank you for your great coverage. >> suzanne? >> a cough election battle, but president obama is already staring down what may be the biggest challenge of his second term. we're talking about keeping the country from going over that imagine living your life

. secretary of state hillary clinton will also transition out. u.n. ambassador susan rice was seen as likely replacement that could be in jeopardy given her public involvement in the very controversial benghazi situation. but also looking at that position, senator kerri. seen as potential contender for secretary of state slot, jenna. jenna: you mentioned burnout some of the personal reasons folks don't stay two terms. what are the key decisions that will impact the decisions? >> i mentioned fiscal cliff with that coming, issues about sequestration. defense secretary leon panetta has been very vocal about the fears of the impact on the pentagon. he has been very involved in the negotiations. we talked to a professor from to us son state university. she said when people are invested in the negotiations they don't like to walk away. that is probably true of secretary panetta. here is what she told us. >> defense secretary leon panetta, he has fought hard against sequestration because he didn't want to see the type of cuts that sequestration called for the defense department. and he is going to
it was reported that the administration voted in the un to fast track an arms treaty that reaches all the way to private sales of small fire arms. >> a global arms treaty. >> steve: this is what dick morrison warned us about. and how do the founders feel about that? >> i think it is clear that the founders did not give the president treaty power to trump individual rights guaranteed by the bill of rights >> chris: check it out. it is a fascinating new book. it is call would the naked constitution, are there president. >> lost his attention. thank you. wine and booze. a dry spell looming when people might need a drink . >> steve: it is friday. heroes who are not stopping being herose . good morning guys, you are next on "fox and friends". ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] i found the best cafe in the world. ♪ nespresso. where there's a coffee to match my every mood. ♪ where just one touch creates the perfect cup. where every cappuccino and latte is made with fresh milk. ♪ and where clothing is optional. nespresso. what else? has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure d
recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements rep
the u.n. and relationships with other countries? >> well, i think it is a little bit of a bruiser for the united states at the united nations. certainly the u.s. is the primary backer of israel. this vote is really a message to the united states that it's support of israel isn't going to be tolerated at the united nations. it puts a lot of pressure on the united states to get these parties back to the table and hammer out a deal as the main mediator in the peace process. >> thank you. >> it is eight minutes past the hour. egypt's assembly passed a new rushed draft constitution. the 85-member mostly muslim brotherhood assembly passed 234 articles. the draft will be presented to morsi and approved by the egyptian people. the language is open to interpretation and may allow conservative islamists to impose a version of law. human rights groups say it's full of holes. the proposed constitution has an anger against the expanded presidential powers. >>> the supreme court will decide whether to tackle same-sex marriage. they will consider requests to review cases. a violation of the cons
